We stopped in to the Griffon for a beer and found it to be a great spot to watch sports, have a drink and enjoy some pub food. Though we didn't actually eat here, the food coming out of the kitchen looked very good.

Stopped for some snacks and cold beverages while taking family thru Charleston. The potato soup was good. Thoroughly enjoyed the buffalo shrimp. Beer was cold. Service was great.
